Finally the incredibly light weight instant messaging application has been released for Nokia (Symbian.) Kik gave news of the private beta, available early this morning following the Nokia World conference. The Kik application looks amazing compared to the vast majority of the Ovi Store applications and runs smoothly on what looks to be any symbian^3 device or Symbian S60 v5.
Here are some Screenshots from the Private Beta:
Kik has covered all their Nokia bases by also releasing an incredibly sexy new Windows Phone 7 OS version of their app, enabling users of Nokia’s new phone line (800 and 710) to Kik.
You can sign up to get the Symbian Kik public beta on the Kik website. This is a must have app for a Nokia N8 and 701!
For those who have purchased a Nokia N8 and are wondering if it is worth it to upgrade this is a complete review of Symbian Anna. We are going to go over the top three upgrades.
The first issue is the issue that the N8 has is that there is no portrait key board. Symbian Anna has a great portrait keyboard it has the same tactility of the regular keyboard. Another upgrade to the keyboard is there is the ability to have non full screen mode. This becomes very useful when trying to remember the context of a text message you are sending.
The second upgrade is the Web Browser. The new Symbian Anna web browser is a lot faster and easily search on google and bing.
The New Camera Interface is very user friendly and takes the Nokia N8 camera to the next level. Along with the upgraded UI, the main feature added is Continuous Auto-Focus (CAF) while recording videos. This will greatly increase the recording quality of videos.
Overall I would recommend the upgrade for all N8 users. Try it out!
